Books for Ukrainian Kids

Theodore’s Books in Oyster Bay, N.Y., is hosting a drive to send children’s books to facilities in Europe being used by Ukrainian refugees. Former U.S, Congressman Steve Israel, Theodore’s owner, said, “As a Congressman, I was able to support funding for humanitarian assistance to refugees around the world. Now, as a private citizen and bookstore owner, I want to do my part to support the needs of displaced Ukrainian children. The best way for me is donating books.” Theodore’s Books is making its own direct contribution of books that will be shipped to facilities housing displaced Ukrainian children, and throughout March, any children’s books purchased at the store and donated to this cause will be discounted 10%.  What a terrific idea; I hope that other booksellers will join in and create their own donation projects.
